This web page is a clearinghouse for information related to scholarly publication in Computing and related fields.
In recent years, there has been much discussion in the Computing Research community regarding scholarly publication: how we communicate and evaluate our ideas. We have a complex, multi-layered system of workshops, conferences, and journals, each of which has evolved as our field has grown. Perhaps it is time to reassess and see if there is benefit to changing the way we publish. There are two forces that provide impetus for such an assessment. On the one hand, there is a worry about how the current systems scale as our field continues to grow. On the other hand, there are new possibilities due to the economics of electronic publication. ·
